Node.js memory leak hunting without v8-profiler

Node.js memory leak hunting without v8-profiler


I'm trying to track down a Memory Leak in a Node.js app. I've tried installing v8-profiler but it will not compile... it looks like a dead project that a lot of people are trying to use but getting the same problem - pretty-much from about node 0.3.2 so quite a while ago.

Does anyone know of a way to hunt down memory leaks in a Node.js app without using v8-profiler? I have Eclipse running with the V8 remote debugging working but cannot find a way to see memory usage / heaps etc.

Have you looked at The author includes a link in the Readme to a more recent (Apr 11) fork of v8-profiler.
